Biography/History

National Educational Television became a reality at a time of intense activity in the world of broadcasting. With the support of the NAEB, the JCET was newly formed as was the National Citizens Committee for Educational Television (NCCET) under a 1952 FAE Grant. The NAEB viewed itself as the vanguard of and spokesman for educational broadcasting in the United States. Fresh from an increasingly successful 25 year campaign in behalf of educational broadcasting with the FCC, the public and the commercial networks, the NAEB had come to view NET as an overly ambitious upstart which was lapping up most of the readily available money, and whose steady growth usurped a steadily widening area of activity including much that had once been the sole purview of NAEB, JCET and the NCCET. Between 1952 and 1959 there was a growing antipathy between NAEB and NET. Without cooperation, conflict was inevitable; and, in fact, “much of the Center's story is the story of its domination over and assimilation of other organizations in the field.” (Wood, 137)

One predominant area of conflict in NET's always delicate and sometimes strained relations with the others concerned the activation of television stations. From its inception NET had employed a simplified concept of station relations and network affairs. At first, of course, there was no network, and few affairs, but there were affiliates. The Center staff was faced with relating to a station as soon as it became an affiliate, ascertaining its needs and problems, and defining ways and means to satisfy those needs. The story of those early relations with affiliates is documented in the station folders of the Program Subject File and in the Early Central File folders devoted to affiliates' meetings. As the number of NET's affiliates increased, so too did the need for a more formal procedure, and the Station Relations Department was organized in 1959.

At a meeting of the ETRC affiliates in 1958, they recommended that a station relations department be formed. Attached to the minutes of that meeting (Series 5B/1/1) are several quite valuable documents for understanding the origin and development of the station relations department. Copies of the briefer ones are also in the processing notes folder.

During the first twenty months of its existence, the work of the department of station relations fell into three areas: 1. Facilitating two-way communication and promoting better understanding between the stations and the Center; 2. Participating in improvement of Center operations, thereby increasing the effectiveness of both stations and the Center; and 3. Assisting affiliated stations (and potential future affiliates) to achieve strength and significance in their own communities. Among other things, the department implemented number one by the use of “Monday Morning Memos,” “Inside Channels” (the affiliate newsletter), and other paper communication, careful analysis of affiliate meetings, and well planned station visits; number two by increased use of videotape and support of NET prime time-- (i.e. simultaneous release of programs nationwide); and number three by encouraging exchange of information between the stations, studying ways to improve that exchange and by continued use of videotape grants.

NET was increasingly called upon to provide advice about a wider range of subjects, other than those related to program needs, namely the entire gamut of station activation, promotion and maintenance, including station health and financing, securing equipment, technical advice, advice on how to deal with government and handle legal affairs, and advice on how to promote viewer support and financial aid. NET did its best to meet all station needs, trying to be everything to everybody in educational television and a fourth area of activity was soon added to the list of responsibilities of the station relations department -- assisting groups and organizations in the activation of new educational stations. NET's actions in this regard stemmed in part from their belief that the other Washington agencies for assisting stations were growing weaker, and in part from the actual non-representation of the ETV stations in Washington.

In 1961 NET assumed responsibility for administration of those FAE activation grants that had not yet reached fulfillment. Later that year, NET opened a Washington office to help still the clamor for assistance from the potential stations that was increasing in intensity and was not being answered satisfactorily by any single organization. Modeled after suggestions of NET's affiliates and assuming the files, personnel and some of the functions of the JCET, the Washington office was headed by David C. Stewart, former executive director of the JCET. With a staff of three plus secretarial help, the Washington office was concerned with the reservation of channels and the activation of ETV stations. It furnished legal, engineering and other advice to groups planning ETV stations. It served as a source of information on channel allocations and the government, and served as the Center's (and thus the affiliates') liaison with federal agencies and professional organizations in education and broadcasting. It provided general and specific information to the public, the government and foreigners, petitioned the FCC in support of pro-ETV measures, and supported all pro-ETV legislation without actually engaging in direct lobbying. In short, it was NET's attempt to handle all ETV problems not directly connected with programming or affiliation with the Center through a separate office. New York would continue to provide the latter two.

At the same time as the Washington office was opened, NET created the position of Vice President for Network Affairs, appointing James Robertson to the post. Shortly thereafter, the position of Director of Station Relations (S.R.), which Robertson had held prior to his appointment, was eliminated, with the Station Relations Associates assigned to report directly to Robertson. Station Relations activities were reduced in scope with the Washington office responsible for much that S. R. had previously done. S. R. under Network Affairs concerned itself mainly with the program and information needs of the affiliates, with “servicing” the affiliates, and with interstation cooperation, looking toward the day when the “network” would really be a Network. Also, Robertson was responsible for the Technical Department and the Distribution Department, and he coordinated all Washington activities with NET's New York headquarters and with the Distribution and Technical operations in Ann Arbor, Michigan. [For a history of the Distribution Department see processing notes.]

Two years after NET moved to meet a need in the rapidly expanding world of educational television, it was forced by a number of factors to reassess its entire situation. Engaging in serious introspection under the leadership of John White, who had favored such a change since taking the helm in 1958, NET dropped participation in radio, instructional TV and station activation in order to devote their limited resources entirely to the production of quality programming for the educational television stations of America, a family of stations that had nearly become a fourth network by that time. The Washington office was abandoned to the staff of the Programming Department.

Such sweeping changes required corresponding changes in the department as well as the concept of Network Affairs at NET. Under Robertson's dynamic leadership the department concerned itself increasingly with the Network and with serving as the central link or liaison between the stations and all the departments at NET. Cooperating closely with Public Information, Distribution, Programming, and Central Administration, Network Affairs became the key department at NET. Robertson was helping to define and establish policy as well as implement it. At the same time, two new departments were created, assuming many of Station Relations' and Network Affairs' former responsibilities and freeing Robertson for the “loftier” implications of Network Affairs. As of October 1963, reporting directly to the president were the Department of Program Operations, concerned with distribution and technical, and the Department of Field Services, concerned with station liaison, operation of flexible service, research, and utilization activities.

The JCET began in 1950 as an ad hoc committee with NAEB and the American Council on Education (ACE) backing, to arrange for educators to testify before the FCC in behalf of reserving television channels for educational use. These efforts are credited with making educational television a possibility. Upon completion of the FCC hearings, which ran from November 1950 through January 1951, the ad hoc committee was discontinued.

In April 1951, the organization was reformed into a permanent Joint Committee on Educational Television with a grant of $90,000 from the FAE through a trustee organization, the American Council on Education. Six other groups joined the ACE in this endeavor, which now had a permanent, paid full-time staff. They were: The Association for Education by Radio-Television, the Association of Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, the NAEB, the National Association of State Universities, the National Council of Chief State School Officers, and the NEA of the United States.

The purpose of the JCET was to work with federal government agencies and with Congress to retain and widen education's hold on television channels. It also assisted educational institutions in planning for use of their channels and worked to convince educators of television's value in education.

In 1955 the organization's name was changed to the Joint Council on Educational Television to prepare for a broadening of its membership. The Ford Foundation assumed direct support of JCET since the FAE had redirected its own program efforts. By 1960, the Ford Foundation had withdrawn its support from a separate JCET and at that time, NET provided a $25,000 grant to continue JCET while discussion went on as to its future.

Finally, in 1961 when NET opened its Washington office, JCET reconstituted itself as the Joint Council on Educational Broadcasting (JCEB), extending its interests to the whole of educational broadcasting, but at the same time, narrowing its responsibility to formulating and enunciating policy. JCET's activities in station activation and in dealing with the Congress and federal agencies were assumed by NET. JCEB has continued as a policy formulating body for education in the broadcasting field, counting as members the same group that were in the JCET, plus NET. David Stewart, Director of NET's Washington office, also became the Secretary of the new JCEB. The JCEB hoped to build upon the extensive experience of JCET and continue to provide the chief forum for discussion and policy formation on national issues affecting all aspects of educational broadcasting.

Scope and Content Note

This series is the second largest and most complex within the NET collection. It reflects the complexity and importance of the departments and organizations concerned with “network affairs” during the years 1954-1966.

The series is arranged in two large files: the Washington office and VP for Network Affairs. The former includes the files NET inherited from the JCEB, the JCET, and from the FAE. The FAE grant files were not generated in the Washington office, but since they also concern station activation, it seemed appropriate to file them here.

[Quote from July 1962 NET proposal to HEW for a Title VII grant to finance station establishment:

“The files in our Washington office are arranged by reserved channels and contain the entire past and present history of inquiries and efforts to activate each such channel, many dating back prior to the reservations themselves. NETRC is also the custodian of the files of the Fund for Adult Education's matching grants awarded to many ETV stations now on the air. These files provide much experience that may be useful as present-day efforts toward activation proceed. In addition, NETRC's current files hold correspondence from more than 60 communities where today there is interest in activation.”]

Sub-subseries 1: FAE Grant Proceedings, 1951-1961
Scope and Content Note

This file is placed first in order because it documents the first NET-related effort at station activation through direct financing. JCET became a part of NET's history almost 10 years after FAE did, hence the order.

The FAE, using Ford Foundation money, existed to establish ETV stations with the stipulation that they provide programming to NET for distribution and that they be an outlet for NET programming. The influence of C. Scott Fletcher can be seen here. FAE also awarded grants directly to NAEB to produce radio programs using local stations' studios, equipment, and personnel.

The FAE was established in April 1951 and concluded operations on 30 June 1961, when NET took over the relationship with those local stations that had not completed the 8-year provision of their grant contract with FAE. Arranged alphabetically by state and thereunder by the name of the organization or city receiving the grant. The grant files contain the following types of documents: correspondence between FAE and local people responsible for ETV from pre-grant through transfer of title of equipment from FAE to local station; reports of FAE personnel on visits to local stations; conference proceedings of locally called meetings on ETV; local proposal to FAE; clippings; telegrams; proceedings of hearings before state legislatures on ETV; minutes of board and An. Gen. Mtgs. of local sponsoring body; also by-laws on some; reports on type of programs being offered locally; published studies on uses of ETV; 1958 NET questionnaire on content of local programming; local fund raising campaign brochures and pamphlets; formal agreement signed by local sponsoring body and FAE; lists of equipment requests and purchases made through FAE Grant; and floor plans and station plans.

Money from the grants were to be used only for purposes of equipping the ETV facility, and not to offset operating expenses. Therefore, a grant application was accepted by FAE only after it had been established that the station was a going concern and that most of the leg work had been done.

To obtain an FAE matching grant the station had to present an FCC construction permit, a certification of its non-profit, tax exempt status, and a detailed engineering report indicating specifically how the money was to be used. The station also had to match the amount of the grant 2 to 1 from local private sources. The station had to keep accurate books and records showing use of the proceeds and matching funds and they had to move with reasonable expedition toward applying the grant and matching funds toward the installation of a broadcasting station. If the station successfully broadcast for a period of three years subject to further conditions relative to the quality and nature of the programming supplied to the community, then, after an additional 5 year waiting period, they were given permanent title to the equipment they had been using.

These files are valuable for the picture they present of how a local ETV station got started, the problems it faced to keep going, the growth of the station, and its relevance in providing education of liberal character for adult population. The files also give a picture of how ETV grew nationally and how the FAE helped in this process through its grants and moral support.

Third Public Hearing of the Temporary New York State Commission on the Use of Television for Educational Purposes, 1953 January 21
Subseries: Subseries 5B. Vice President for Network Affairs: Records, 1954-1967
Physical Description: 38 boxes 
Scope and Content Note

This series consists almost entirely of records generated by the Station Relations Department and the office of the VP for Network Affairs; however, there are also records from the department of Field Services. These records include correspondence, legal documents, printed reports, minutes of meetings, memos of Field Services and Station Relations, and promotional material from affiliated stations. They are organized into an alphabetical subject file.

[Note: The main reason that the files of the Station Relations and Field Services Departments were combined with the records of the VP for Network Affairs under the latter title is that they arrived at the archives hopelessly interspersed. Also, Robertson was successively the Director of Station Relations and VP for Network Affairs. The duties of those two and of Field Services as well were very similar.]

Among the more extensive records in this series are the records of affiliates' meetings, records regarding the FCC, foreign correspondence, station profiles--arranged by state and station call letters, information on over 70 affiliates, records regarding JCET-JCEB, the NAEB, and the NETRC Board of Directors. Numerous throughout are also the folders (1 to 5 each) relating to state and regional commissions, organizations and networks, all related to educational television or broadcasting, arranged under the name of state or organization.
